Hi all,

Newbie here; just wanted to say hello!

I just took delivery of a brand new 2004 9-3 Aero about 2 weeks ago. Fully loaded, steel gray, split 5-stars. (I will post some pics. as soon as I take some... lazy :-?)

I was the previous owner of a '94 Honda Accord, pics. attached below, and have never owned a Saab before, and, needless to say, I am very excited and pleased with my new toy!

I love the forum; it is very helpful and informational. But I hope no one hates me because I'm a huge FC Porto fan. :D

Obrigado, Tony

Hello, and welcome to saab central, I think you'll find the aero to be quite an upgrade over your honda. Just don't try and put a body kit on it :lol:

No body kit on my Honda either, just a front lip spoiler. I wasn't a ricer.

Welcome to Saabcentral.
Check it, though, you posted pictures of the wrong car. We don't care what your Honda looked like. Show us that Saab!!!

Welcome to saab central :lol:One of those little fans you carry around to keep cool?

Welcome to Saabcentral. Drop by the 9-3 Sports Sedan forum sometime. We will tell you all sorts of things about your car (and some things you don't want to hear too :wink: )

from a Honda to SAAB, but I can beat that!

I went from a 1993 Eagle Summit DL (Mitsubishi-built cheapo car with now defunct American automaker Eagle badge on it) to a 2001 9-3 Viggen Convertible. My Eagle was about 9 years old and only had 56k miles on it. I tend to buy a new car, keep it for a long time and take care of it. That was my first car out of college and served me well.

I'm sure it's all tricked out now by the ricer crowd.

Yeah I cam from a long lineage of Saab/Volvo owners, but in college my first car was a '97 Mercury Sable.

Traded that in for a 2001 9-5 Aero 5spd :)

The difference is glorious!

i can beat both of you Hyundai accent 1300cc ´96 (85 hp) to Saab 900 turbo ´86 ;) feel 10 years older and twice as powerfull ;) .. too bad accent was faster up then saab (well until turbo kick in saab) :D

hmm dont get me the wrong way but my accent was fast going up (beat WRX and GSX until WRX got into 3th gear and eclipse got to 2th gear.. GSX run 13.2 sec) 60 ft: 2.549 ;) (well i am sure i got better time from one of my slips but i keep only one with my best time)

Good to hear from you all. You've all helped me feel very welcome. Thanks! :D

I will be posting pics. this week. Keep your eyes peeled.

BTW, FC Porto is the best soccer team in the world.. incase you were all wondering. Sorry for the confusion. I just didn't know whether I'd be ridiculed or not by some of the folks in Manchester. :P

Normally I would be the first to disagree with you (See avatar). But after the earlier disaster :cry: I can't really say much :roll:

Welcome to Saabcentral and good luck on May 26th....I will be a Porto fan for that one day :D

BTW I don't know that there are many Man Ure fans on these forums as you have to be a lot older than 12 to drive a Saab :cheesy:
